I bevieve that year is 305 or 350 with Throttle body injection so remove air cleaner cover start car allow to warm up then see if plate below main injector opens when engine is revved ..if it does then be sure it is partially open at idle .. check wiring underside of air cleaner / loose / heat damaged -----Or if Aftermarket air cleaner then unplugged wires from factory must be looped to create all ok signal .....The Throttle plate at base of unit or old style carb can wear creating unstable idle or choke light signal due to inconsistant air flow ..

My choke light stays on while i drive my 84 firebird trans am. Why does it do that and how can i make it go away?

the choke light will come on when the choke is on i assume its electric choke if the choke is on vehicle would run poorly flood out and stall if vehicle runs fine then its in the electrics of the choke switch or a bad wire to the choke that says its on even when its not i would start there first.

Problem with choke not opening on pontiac 6000 1984

There is no choke on an '84 6000. The engine has throttle body injection, quite modern for its time. Chokes are only necessary on carburetors.

Speedometer just stopped working with no notice

If trans is still shifting its most likely a blown cluster fuse or bad cluster.If you have a check engine light & trans don't shift most likely blown trans fuse or trans vss (speedo) harness at right drive axle broken puple with white stripe wire or light green wire with black stripe

Engine choking?

Is the check engine light on? If it is, take it to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) stored in the car's computer. The codes will help narrow down what the problem may be. It could be a faulty throttle position sensor or another problem. To end the speculation, have the fault codes read. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Choke light stays on in 84 K5 blazer

This might be a sign of low oil pressure. The choke light runs in conjunction with the oil pressure circuit therefore a deficit or problem in the oil pressure signal could subsequently create this choke light.Low oil level can cause this.
